Two year old beautiful ship, the food was excellent and the cabins had plenty of room. The ship was very easy to navigate for all ages, with the exception of the sundeck. The elevator did not go up. The off-shore excursions had enough options to meet interests and physical capabilities for all on-board. Staying on the boat always being one of the options. The staff and cruise manager were exceptional. You would not have known they have been on-board since March 1st only a couple of weeks vacation by their enthusiasm. The entertainment was a little different each evening and met our personal tastes a few of the times. Was still talented and good even though it may have not been our cup of tea. I am a person that has been on multiple ocean cruises and always battles motion sickness. No issues at all during the 7 days on the river. Would do it again if the opportunity arises. Read Less

This was our second cruise with AMA. The first was the Danube and now the Rhine River. From the very beginning of each of these cruises.. every detail was noted to make sure all passengers were delighted. The cruise manager, Marcia and hotel manager Eduord were the best of the best. Also we had a very hands on captain. The staterooms were roomy enough and very efficient. The meals and entertainment were top of the line. What sets AMA cruises apart from others are the programs/guides/sites along the way to experiencing Europe’s famous cities and small villages. We never remotely had a concern/problem along the way. If we had, we were always assured anything could be fixed. The guides were extremely knowledgeable about the areas of the country they came from. There was extraordinarily history and experiences shared with us. We highly recommend any river cruise with AMA. They are a family owned company and want each of us to have a valuable travel experience. The Grants Read Less

We have been long-time ocean cruisers and this was our first river cruise. I had always been warned that it is very different from ocean cruising and that is true - in a good way! I had also been told AMA is a first class company and would not disappoint - also true. We boarded with these understandings and were open to a new and different cruise experience. Our favorite travel agent had formed a group to sail together (she is always lots of fun), so we knew we would enjoy the people on board. AmaKristina is new (last year) and very beautiful. Public spaces well-appointed and clean. Cabins were even more spacious than I anticipated with plenty of storage. Beds were firmer than we are used to but we neglected to ask for extra cushion. Dining was also very good, plenty of variety - well prepared and presented. Service also was very good ship-wide. I really have no complaints about the ship, its provisions or its personnel. There is not a lot of entertainmenton a river cruise, but we did enjoy the nights extra entertainers were brought onboard. We also had no problem "making our own fun" otherwise. Port stops are pretty much every day on a river cruise, so we were never bored. We have always enjoyed sea days so it was maybe more than we wanted to do. The shore excursions were well-organized and tour guides were very good. They provide a wide variety of activity options. You will cetainly find something to fit your desired activity level, and it is easy to get to know others on board. With about 150 passengers embark and debark were a breeze - easiest we have encountred ever. We definitely plan to do another river cruise in the future, and will be happy to sail with Ama again. They take very good care of their passengers! Read Less

This was my first riverboat cruise and it was absolutely fantastic. Everything was perfect, the ship was beautiful and the cabin was great. Loved the entertainment, even the crew sang Christmas Carols one night! The dining was exquisite and the waiters certainly looked after any diabetic and allergy concerns. The tours and guides were wonderful. Interesting to see the boat going through the locks. The service was outstanding too. Loved the Welcome and Farewell cocktail parties when the champagne was overflowing! With fewer passengers we certainly felt we were treated like royalty and for sure I would book another cruise with AMA. Perhaps one in September or October would be my choice! Our Cruise Manager was amazing and looked after us very well. Our luggage was always where it should be. We did the extra days in Lucerne and Zurich and again the tours and guides were excellent. An AMA Waterways helped us at Zurich Airport on our departure. When I got home, there was a lovely handwritten postcard from AMA, personally signed by some of our crew favourites! AMAzing holiday and I would give AMA Waterways five stars for everything and would definitely recommend them to one and all. Can't wait to go again! Read Less

We took a group of 35 for our first river cruise and couldn't be happier with the entire experience. We had time to explore Amsterdam before embarkation and found it to be one of the most enchanting cities we have ever visited. Our embarkation was flawless and because we were a group we had the opportunity to meet staff prior to the official beginning of the cruise. Our cruise director, Maddy Caldaruse was very helpful in answering our questions and helping to discover that another group had a priest as one of it's members. She even was so kind to introduce us and allow us to have a Mass said in the lounge as we cruise away from Amsterdam on Sunday. I estimate 60 or so attended Mass which was a great experience. Who else can say they attended Mass on a ship while traveling down the Rhine? The AmaKristina is a new ship and is in great shape. The Cabins were clean and always made up promptly every day. Dining was terrific, everyone in our group claimed to have gained weight from the delicious food served by exceptional staff who demonstrated daily they were interested in making sure we all had a great experience. The shore excursions were interesting and our guides were very well informed and interesting. We are all talking about going again in the near future. AmaWaterways you get my enthsiastic two thumbs up! Read Less
